i.MX 8M Plus Applications Processor

NXP’s quad-core applications processor is ideal for machine learning and vision, advanced multimedia, and factory automation

Image of NXP's i.MX 8M Plus Applications ProcessorNXP's i.MX 8M Plus family focuses on machine learning and vision, advanced multimedia, and industrial IoT with high reliability. The i.MX 8M Plus family is part of NXP’s EdgeVerse™ edge computing platform. It is built to meet the needs of smart home, building, city, and industry 4.0 applications.

The i.MX 8M Plus evaluation kit is feature-rich and an excellent starting point for those wishing to create a system design based on the i.MX 8M Plus applications processor.

The i.MX 8M Plus evaluation kit is a two-board solution that consists of a compact computing module and a larger baseboard that brings out the broad connectivity needed for product evaluation. The computing module uses fast, power-efficient 6 GB of LPDDR4 memory alongside the i.MX 8M Plus applications processor, PMIC, eMMC, and M.2 connected Wi-Fi/Bluetooth® module for out-of-box connectivity.

The EVK enables HDMI via the HDMI port on the baseboard or through an optional MIPI-DSI-to-HDMI accessory card for simple out-of-box bring up.
